About Me

Hi! I'm Becca Fitzpatrick, the author of the internationally bestselling HUSH, HUSH saga. When not writing, I'm most likely running, prowling sale racks for shoes (stilettos, please!), or enjoying one of life's many little indulgences: Ice cream, Veronica Mars, losing myself in a book, painting my toenails, or simply daydreaming. I do my best to update this blog as frequently as possible with news on upcoming events, tips for writers, and all things pertaining to my books.

27 June 2013


So this is my theme song for the week:

I'm DONE with my second round of Black Ice edits! Already, I'm starting to feel like a sane and normal person again. Like, I showered today. And I went running (before showering). And I ate actual food for lunch (not Peanut M&M's). I responded to a few emails (only 974 unread emails left in my inbox. Hey, if I keep it under a thousand, I feel like all's well in Beccaland). And - ta da - I'm blogging!

Of course, finishing this round of edits doesn't mean the book is ready for publication. I still have a third round of edits, copyedits, first-pass pages, and possibly second-pass pages.  I've made it over two very big hurdles, but there are still a few left to jump. I get asked frequently if there is any chance that Black Ice will be published this year. In short, no. I spoke with my editor today, and the 2014 publication date is firm.

If you're wondering what I'll be doing while I wait for my editor to send me my next round of editorial notes, the answer is I'll be working on my next book. Why, didn't you know that's how authors celebrate turning in a book draft? I've had this story in my mind for a couple months and I'm very excited about it. It's a YA romantic suspense set in a small town in Nebraska. Little town, big secrets. I hope to take a road trip to Nebraska soon to scout out locations and take lots of photographs that will help me create the story world in my mind. I think I've mentioned this before, but I love story beginnings. I love the possibility, the potential. For me, there's a certain magic in a blank page. Anything can happen.

Hi. My name is Laci Maskell. I love your books. They are actually my favorite books. I share them with all of my friends. I live in Nebraska. A very small town in Nebraska with little over 400 people. I would love nothing more than the chance to meet you when you come and scout out the state. I could even share my Nebraska insight with you. If meeting you is even possible when you come to the state you can comment here. Or you can email me at laci.maskell@gmail.com Thank you.

So brilliant that you're continuing to write and so quickly! There's no better way for you to celebrate handing in the edits than starting the next books! Best of luck!
